That music gave me goosebumps... beautiful tune.

Nice looking saw but not so sure I like the idea of not being able to tune it manually.... unless it's still there and they just didnt show it..

From what I understand, you cannot tune it manually. However, the autotune is supposed to continualy tune the saw for varying conditions (different fuels - like switching from E10 to "real" gas, different altitudes or atmospheric pressure, partially clogged air filter, etc.)

It does make me wonder about using these autotune saws for chainsaw milling. Usually people run rich for this application, to protect the saw from overheating in a long cut. Will the autotune handle such a situation?

I'm pretty impressed with the 562 autotune , very strong saw with a ton of torque and nice to handle and run

How are the 562XPs doing now that they're broke in  ??? ???  I was at a Husky dealer the other day that had one.  Nice looking saw for sure.  My Jonsered dealer hasn't heard anything about a red version yet.

Corley5, My 562XP is the best saw I have ever owned when you consider cost, weight and power. I don't mean to say it was the cheapest, lightest or most powerful, but when I consider all three factors I found it to be #1. I felled and limbed 90% hardwoods this winter from about 12" up to 30" and used my 562XP almost all the time. I have 10 chainsaws from small Huskys and Jonsereds up to a 576XP and all I wanted to use was the 562XP.
